Riva from Uno, Dos, Tres Chic shares her secret for creating beautiful stacks of aged books like you see all through the pages of home décor catalogs. Riva’s process involves tearing the cover off of cheapo books, giving the binding and pages a special soak, and then “accessorizing” the books with a little wear and tear. Once dry, the books are ready to be tied and put out on display. You would never believe these were crisp, new books just a few days before!
Riva was inspired by the worn books seen in Pottery Barn’s catalog.
